I've been spending a good amount of time day dreaming about and researching a mini trip to New York sometime in April. Luke purchased old maps of the train lines on Long Island for my Christmas gift and we plan to swing through Lynbrook where my Grandma Carmela was born. So so super excited about it as I've never been to the big apple. And he says he's not good at gifts...he lies.

I made some pad thai for a sibling get together at Ashton's. Yum :) I'm finally getting somewhat comfortable making thai dishes (but I still have a lot to learn).
Mia approved which made me feel legit ;)
And then it was off to Caleb and Laura's for a few days. Caleb opens a belated birthday gift of golf balls. We're pretty big spenders when it comes to birthday gifts. ;)
Laura had made mini lava cakes with peanut butter from scratch. Yes please. I promptly returned to my no sugar rules after eating this if you were wondering. And boy does sugar taste good when you haven't had dessert in a while. :)
Some kind of asian sea food fritter she made for dinner. Very interesting to watch the prep on this dish.
kids eating the fritters off little chop sticks and the spread ;)
We somehow convinced the boys to put these on and try to figure out what they were via questions while they watched football. Hilarious.
haha... Laura you crazy thing. Talk about a wild new years hu? :D
